Coromandel Pacific Beaches

There are many wonderful beaches across the Pacific Coast from Cathedral Cove to New Chums Beach where the light and weather conditions change frequently providing a series of ever changing photographic choices.

Whether its capturing the golden light of the early sun reflecting off the rocks and waves, long exposures of the shifting seas and clouds or close up shots of the many birds that inhabit the Pacific coastline. Cormorants, Gulls, Gannets, Herons, Kingfishers and the elusive Dotterel which are surprisingly easy to spot if you know where to go.

For nature photographers or those seeking to capture the serene beauty of the native forest, it’s a wonderful place full of flowers, insects, streams and waterfalls.

The mighty Kauri, one of the most ancient and massive trees in the world grows only in upper North Island. The Puriri Tree, also only found in the upper North Island, is a curative and sacred to the Maori.

There maybe some trail walking required to access the forest locations.

"Thanks for the great time we had on the photography course. The things I learned have made a real difference to the results I am now getting with my camera. It's given me more confidence and belief that I can go out, find and compose the images I want, capture them and get the best out of them in post processing. I'm enjoying my photography more as a result. So thanks for making me a better photographer and I'm looking forward to another course to take me to the next level!"
